On this week's Political Analysis: Can This Democracy Be Saved?
Sandy LeonVest talks to pro-democracy activist, visionary and founder of Wisconsin's Liberty Tree Foundation, Ben Manski. He discusses the significance of Governor Scott Walker's successful effort to defeat the recent recall effort in that state; ongoing efforts in Florida and other states to purge the voter roles of non-GOP voters; and the evermore alarming trend of outright election-theft on the part of conservatives. Sandy and Ben also look at the ways in which unlimited corporate money is corrupting the electoral process -- and what needs to happen (outside of the corporate-owned ballot box) in order for the people to reclaim what remains of our democracy here in the US.
